Dustin Johnson and Paulina Gretzky attend Tyson Fury KNOCKOUT VICTORY

The Shriners Hospitals for Children Open was not the only headline sports event in Nevada this weekend. The famous state has been treated to some fantastic sporting spectacles in these last few days.

One of them was the heavyweight clash between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder last night at the T-Mobile Arena. It was a fight that will not be forgotten by boxing fans any time soon.

Despite being knocked down twice in the fourth round, Fury pressurised and beat up Wilder and eventually knocked him out in the 11th round, sparking jubilant scenes.

As per usual, there were many recognisable stars from the worlds of sport and entertainment and former World No. 1 Dustin Johnson and his fiancé Paulina Gretzky were amongst them.

Johnson usually rubs shoulders with the greats on the golf course as he competes on the PGA Tour each week, but last night he was just feet away from arguably the best heavyweight boxer in the world in Fury.

Paulina managed to capture the exact moment when Fury landed the decisive knockout punch on Wilder. She posted it on her Instagram story and she tagged Dustin Johnson and his brother Austin Johnson.

Johnson and Paulina, who have been engaged to get married for eight years, are set to tie the knot very soon but the date is yet to be revealed.

Other PGA Tour stars Ian Poulter and Graeme McDowell were also present in Paradise to view the titanic clash, which will go down as one of the greatest fights in the history of the heavyweight division.

Four-time major champion Brooks Koepka was also lucky enough to be in the crowd. The cream of the golf world, as well as the boxing world, were all around at the T-mobile Arena.
